Default Re: Superman Secret Origin reviews

I don't mind seeing him draw Supes as Chris Reeve but, unfortunately, that comes with Chris' 'Clark' which I loathe and detest.

I'm not a fan of Donner's Superman. Even when I was a kid, I thought it was lacking. To resurrect it here makes it officially part of canon and I'm really not happy about that.

I also don't like Sean Connery as Jor-El. Ever since Brando, there seems to be a train of thought that Jor-el needs to be white haired and geriatric. Up until then, Jor-el was always a young man. I want that back. Byrne tried to give that to us and it was great. Now we have Didio and his Silver Age/Donner cohorts tossing it all away.

I've got to say that I've stopped buying Superman titles with the exception of this (which I'm only buying to stay on top of the changes).. ... Oh, I did pick up the recent one with the Mon-el costume change. Sucked.
